NEW DELHI: A man who was arrested for the murder of his mother-in-law allegedly died after he committed suicide at the Tihar Jail on Saturday morning. The man was found hanging in his cell at jail number 4.
The man, Ravi, had stabbed his mother-in-law with an ice-pick and severely injured her neighbours when they tried to stop him. However, he was caught by two cops while he was fleeing from the house after the murder.
Police said that he was jailed earlier in a POCSO case and was bailed out last year. His wife and daughter had started staying with his law after this arrest and refused to return back to his house.
He had blamed his mother-in-law for trying to keep his wife away from him and attacked her. Prima facie probe suggests that Ravi was suffering from depression after being lodged at the jail again for a heinous crime.
This is the second time that a murder accused committed suicide after being lodged in jail.
